A Decomposition Theorem for Positive Maps, and the Projection Onto a Spin Factor

  • Erling Størmer

Abstract

It is shown that each positive map between matrix algebras is the sum of a maximal decomposable map and an atomic map which is both optimal and co-optimal. The result is studied in detail for the projection onto a spin factor.
